Okay, so this isn’t my typical “Fun Find” but I was so excited about this I knew I had to share it with the world. Like most of you, I don’t have time to get manicures or even paint my own nails on a regular basis. I’ve got a busy life and when I’m not chasing after an active baby I’m doing dishes, laundry, picking up toys, cooking or playing Words With Friends — okay so maybe that last part isn’t necessary but it’s how I spend my 5 minutes of peace and quiet.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, that whole being a mom + looking presentable thing. After watching American Idol one night and seeing a few of the contestants wearing this amazing aqua color I knew I wanted to try it out — supposedly it’s the color of the season. I’m not usually so bold so this was a bit of a stretch for me. While I was at Target I picked up a $9 bottle of OPI nail polish. My frugal husband stood in the aisle and sighed. I know, I know, $9 for 0.5 fl oz of nail polish does seem a bit steep, but it’s “the good stuff,” right? After grumbling under my breath I put the OPI back and picked up this $1.99 bottle from the bottom shelf. Little did I knew this was going to be my new favorite beauty product. I hate to admit it, but I have to thank my husband (just don’t ever tell him I said he was right).
Normally my manicures last two days, maybe three if I’m lucky. Even those “no-chip manicures” that are guaranteed to last 2-3 weeks don’t hold up. I’ve been told I have oily nails, whatever that means. I’ve tried all of the clear bases, OPI, Essie, top coats, gels and so on. Nothing works. ::Cue the angels:: This $2 bottle of polish lasted SEVEN whole days. I could not believe it. Sinful Colors is sold at Target and Walgreens, so next time you’re there pick up a bottle and try it out. I’d love to hear what you think. If you love it, you can thank me (or my husband) for that extra $7 in your wallet.
